To mitigate the impacts of climate change and resource depletion in the Imiría Regional Conservation Area, located in the Peruvian Amazon, artisanal fishermen from four neighboring Indigenous communities, local and regional authorities, and experts in the field are joining efforts to assess the Imiría lagoon’s fisheries’ resources. With technical assistance from the USAID Pro-Bosques Activity, a comprehensive fisheries evaluation is taking place and will serve as key input in the design of a Fisheries Management Plan, which will contribute to the sustainable management and governance of natural resources in this regional conservation area.
